Proteomics Will Feature in Center of Excellence to Be Built in France

NEW YORK, June 10 (GenomeWeb News) - The Partnership for Structural Biology will build a European Center of Excellence for Structural Biology in Grenoble, France, the groups said this week.


The PSB includes the Grenoblecomponent of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, the Institut Laue-Langevin, and the Institut de Biologie Structurale.


Sixty scientists from these groups, as well as from the Instituteof Molecularand Structural Virology, will work at the center. The building will house infrastructure for high-throughput protein expression, characterization, and crystallization.


The PSB is involved with structural proteomics initiatives in Europe, including the BIOXHIT initiative.
